Just some additional words about head.S - with more and more platforms that
Linux/MIPS gets ported to (ranging from evalutation board over RISC PCs
to workstations (If only SNI'd deliver what they promise ...) and a
whole bunch of processor types that differ a lot I intend to eleminate
most of the startup code in head.S and place the exception handler code
into multiple files.
